when i go to look at the oday which in all likelyhood will be tomorrow , what should i look for besides the condition of the sails , sheets, and other rigging

i would think the condition of the interior and leak/rot spots on fiberglass but do these boats have any tendancies to crap out in certain places, also what is a good price for a good condition ?

Only one on Yachtworld right now.... see here: 1982 Oday Daysailer Sail Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com

Listed near $4K... but as the only one it's not much of an indication. Also you can expect it would actually sell for less... maybe a lot less....

I wouldn't settle on either the oday or the other one with cabin. I would however choose one of the two for your needs, but I would decide by which boat offered the best deal for the money. One may be cheaper but wouldn't take much to get it the same level as the other if its not in as good of shape.

Go for the best deal.

Small is beautiful, simple, cheap, and easy......

Ok, not for nothing, but that is a helluva lot of money for an old 19 footer.

Craigslist is your friend. Be sure to search all your surrounding areas... Don't be afraid to travel a little.

I haven't been there in many years, but Saylorville Lake is not too far from Coralville Lake, and it was a hotbed of sailing and racing at one time. Unless something drastic has happened there, you should be able to find lots more sailboats to choose from in your locale.

Hi,

Neighboring Coralville Lake is Lake Macbride, where the University of Iowa sailing club is located. The club is open to both the public and students, we have over 45 boats to sail. We also offer free lessons with membership, and we have fair membership prices. If you are looking to get into sailing this is the place to start. We have a puffer, a 24 foot O'day, and plenty of boats in-between including hobie cats. For only $35 you can have access to our boats and lessons. This is the best deal I have seen in my sailing experience and I would advise anyone in the Coralville/Iowa City/North Liberty area to take advantage of.

If you have any questions visit Iowa Sailing Club or email the club's leader.
